Mantis introduces TC 25 self erector

25 April 2008

At the UK's SED show in May, Ireland-based Mantis Cranes displayed a working prototype of its new TC 25 self-erecting tower crane. The crane is a self-contained unit built on a roadable chassis with fixed ballast that allows the 20 tonne rig to be transported to the jobsite using one vehicle and in one journey. The TC 25 can deliver a 1,000 kg load to a 20 m radius, or a 750 kg load to 25 m, at a hook height of 19 m.

Developed by Mantis in conjunction with the engineering department of the University of Ulster at Jordanstown in Ireland, the TC 25 is the result of market research regarding customer lifting needs on smaller projects. Mantis plans to market the new crane to timber frame and light steel frame construction contractors.

Mantis said it has six orders for the TC 25, all from existing customers, and that deliveries will start in the next month or so.
